Top Movies... Arsenic and Old Lace (1944)


ARSENIC AND OLD LACE (1944) 1hr 58min R Sept 23, 1944 D- Frank Capra W- Epstein Bros C- Cary Grant, Priscilla Lane, Raymond Massey

"Insanity runs in my family, it practically gallops."

Vehemently anti-marriage drama critic Cary Grant changes his mind and marries adorable Priscilla Lane and brings her home so she can pack her bags for their honeymoon while he runs in to say hello (and goodbye) to his two sweet old lady aunts and his deranged brother Teddy who thinks he's Theodore Roosevelt.   While there he discovers his aunts are actually homicidal serial killers just as his other half brother, the serial killer Jonathan Brewster, comes home.

If that doesn't sound like a funny premise trust me it is.

This is easily one of the funniest movies I've ever seen and its a perfect Halloween themed movie.  Cary Grant felt he over-acted, and he does, but it fits the screwball nature of this black comedy.

Melitta Coffee Funnel

You want to get the most out of your coffee? Try using this and you won't turn your coffeemaker back on.
I have a high end Cuisinart Coffee Maker with all the bells and whistles and it makes great coffee-- this makes even better coffee. How is that possible? Well the water goes directly to the grounds and into your cup. There's not a lot of plastic and metal that has to heat the water first and then send it up and through your filter adding additional flavors to your favorite grind.

Don't take my word for it-- grab one of these, a #4 filter, a scoop and a half of grounds and add some piping hot water and see if I'm wrong.
